Contracts are hard, legal jargon is confusing and when working with people you trust drawing up a contract may feel unnecessary.

Unfortunately, not knowing how to develop or interpret a contract may cause serious problems down the line. For example, commissioners may change their mind, rates of compensation may change or you may start disagreeing with the other party.

Miscommunication should be avoided and a written contract is an excellent tool for safeguarding your creative work.

In this session, Aditya Vasudevan, a solicitor at the Arts Law Centre of Australia (Arts Law), will cover the basics of a written contract, including the key questions:

  • What are contracts and why are they important?
  • How can they be formed?
  • What do you need to include in a contract?
  • How can you use contracts to protect yourself and your work?

Aditya Vasudevan will also help you understand the jargon that gets thrown around in contracts to help build confidence in establishing mutual agreement.

Please note this webinar will not be recorded. This webinar will provide general legal advice for artists, for specific queries please contact Arts Law for a free 20-minute legal advice session:
